This weekend was a mixture of fun and a little work. We started off Saturday morning with the fun and went to two subdivision sales. We only found one thing though and that was a new in the box bookcase for $15.00. Yeah, I opened it up and shut it real quick. We will put that together another time. Then we had a wonderful take out meal from the local steakhouse for Mother's Day dinner (we always do this the day before or even the week before).
Really, after that we collapsed ..the day was done.
Sunday, we finally put up our mantle. We bought a Walnut board from Habitat for Humanity where they sell reclaimed wood. We paid only $35.00. They had some huge ones like you see on Bonanza there too but I had to put my dreams aside and find the one that fit our fireplace.
After eating leftovers us girls went flower shopping. We didn't buy any annual flowers or vegetables just a tree for daughter and a climbing vine for me. It's still too cold.
Last night finally we put up an trellis between the two raised beds in the vegetable garden. It's not a perfect job but no one will notice after things are growing and I love it.
I'll take a picture soon. Man, it's a bit nippy out there.
As you can see I put the notion aside of sleeping in and doing nothing for Mother's Day a long time ago.
